Daily Post: Daily Prompt – Origin Story: Beginnings

Why did I start to write my blog, good question… a friend suggested it!  Being a naturally reserved (shy) person I had avoided blogging as it seemed that I might reveal more of myself than I may have found comfortable.  A chat over tea with a good friend about their blog  planted the seed in my head and I thought – why not give it a go?  If it was awful I could always abandon it.

At first I intended to focus on Art and Art related things as this is where my main interests lie; as the blog has developed I have strayed away from this and other things have crept in such as visits to country houses and gardens and mini ‘tutorials’ showing how I make things.  Is this good or bad, should a blog focus only on one field of interest?  I don’t think so.  My blog is about the things I find interesting and I think that if I like it, someone somewhere else might also like it and that’s got to make it worth sharing.

My biggest dilemma is imagery.  I love to photograph ‘stuff’.  I am not a great photographer of landscape/people/whatever, but I do like to try to capture images of things that interest me, and subsequently I like to share some of these on the blog.  The issue is whether or not it should be purely photographic or words; or really have I got the balance just about right?

So, as a ‘writer’ that is why I started my blog, to share things with others.  Now as a photographer here is an image that I think shows the theme “Beginnings”.
